Writing - Audience 4

Audience 4

Different situations and audiences call for different styles of writing. A
political speech differs in tone, language and even presentation to an
entry written in someone's personal diary. In the same way a journalist and
a poet use different techniques and forms to appeal to their readers. In
all cases the writer must consider who their audience is and then tailor
their words to appeal to that audience.

When thinking about your audience begin by asking yourself these two very
simple questions.

* How old is my audience?

* What is the social background of the audience?
